One of the greatest benefits of choosing to build a steel warehouse using a metal Quonset Hut is the clear span design.
Unlike traditional structures, these steel warehouses are self-supporting and do not require the use of beams and trusses. This allows the owner to use 100% of the space on the inside of the building leaving plenty of room for large trucks, machinery, products and large tools.
Industrial Strength Warehouses for a Lower Price
Prefabricated warehouse costs are significantly lower than a traditional style building primarily due to ease of construction. Depending on how basic your needs are, you can get put together a warehouse storage kit for as little as $10 a square foot.
SteelMaster’s prefabricated arches are pre-punched and pre-drilled at our factory before they are delivered to your job site. We will provide you with all of the nuts and bolts you will need for construction.
When the warehouse building arrives, you’ll receive most of what you need to put it together with just the help of a small crew depending on the size of the building. Larger projects will require more equipment to construct. Our buildings only require the use of one size nut and bolt, and bolting the arches together is a breeze. This cuts down on the time it takes to build, which decreases labor costs.
The cost of a warehouse can also add up over time when you consider the money it takes to maintain the structure. SteelMaster’s buildings come with a 40-year warranty, and we’ve also specially engineered each panel to last a lifetime.
If severe weather hits your area, you can rest easier knowing your expensive equipment is protected inside of your SteelMaster metal warehouse. Our modular warehouses are also designed to meet the load and code demands of your specific area.
SteelMaster’s disaster resistant buildings have stood strong against dangerous tornadoes, hurricanes, hail storms, strong winds, and even heavy snow loads. We follow FEMA’s building codes, IBC codes, ASCE-7 recommendations and building codes specific to your location, such as Florida’s HVHZ and Chapter 16 codes.
From production facilities to commercial storage, SteelMaster’s warehouse buildings are specially designed to meet the unique needs of your business.
Huertos Del Valle, one of Chile’s biggest exporters of nuts in the area, came to us with a unique problem; they needed a storage building that could protect their harvests from outside air.
Adequate storage for these crops was a huge problem for business owners in South America.
This problem resulted in an estimated 50% loss in harvested cereals and nuts in the region. Huertos Del Valle needed a warehouse that was durable, spacious, and a building that was airtight enough to protect their products. The company was so impressed with their custom warehouse structures that they purchased four of them.
If you plan to relocate, you can also move your metal warehouse from site to site without having to purchase a new building. With the addition of a special foundation plate called an IBC connector, you’re able to transport your building wherever you go. This will save on additional construction costs and materials.
Plus, if you expand your business and need more space inside of your warehouse to accommodate future growth, all you have to do is add more arches to expand the length of your building. You don’t have to hire special contractors to knock out walls and you won’t lose precious production time during the process.
We have many items to help you create a custom building that will meet your company’s needs. One way to customize your prefab warehouse is through parts and accessories. Some of the most common accessories include doors, insulation, skylights and vents.
If you decide to add endwalls, you can customize them to match any other surrounding buildings. Since endwalls are non-load bearing, your custom design will only enhance the appearance of the building. Additionally, all of our parts come from one factory, so this significantly decreases the time it takes to deliver.
The SteelMaster buildings used in Operation Bahamas Turks and Caicos (OPBAT) in the Bahamas chose to include a bi-fold door where the helicopters are stored. The use of a commercial bi-fold door is a strategic design choice because as the door comes up like a garage door, it folds in half and is slightly angled to allow rain to drain off the front of the door and not collect on top of it.
Also, because the doors are so large, the fact that they fold in half instead of just pulling up all together takes much of the stress off the front of the building.
In addition to the Coast Guard, our building experts have worked with every branch of the U.S. Military and large corporations all over the world on safe, secure, metal warehouses. Every building is designed to meet the International Building Codes and the codes of each specific location. Our metal warehouses are also backed by a 40-year warranty that will give you added peace of mind.
To save time, money, and frustration, a prefabricated metal warehouse is the best option for any industry.
